2 miscarriages, scared to conceive again
(CA, USA )
I'm a relatively healthy 28 year old and I have just suffered my 2nd misscariage in 6 months. My first was 6 months ago, my first pregnancy, I was 11 weeks pregnant after some minor spotting I went to the er to discover my baby had stopped developing at 9.5 weeks.
I conceived again in June, heard our baby's heart beat at 7 weeks 3 days, I went to the doctor's 3 weeks later, insisting on an ultrasound as my pregnancy hormones had begun to subside the previous week. We once again discovered no heart beat, our baby had stopped developing around the same 9 week mark.
My periods have always been regular, I have not taken birth control for about 7 years and there was no testing of the fetus after each miscarriage. Our doctor has simply explained 'it happens'. I'm not comfortable conceiving again until we have some reassurance, I have read a little that would suggest I am low in progesterone although my doctors will not test until I am pregnant again.
Is there any precautionary methods I can take? My only other thoughts are that I could maybe have a blood clotting disorder. Reading up on low progesterone, I do lose quite a lot of hair, terrible pmt and occasional depression. I was vegetarian up until 2 years ago but now eat meat, my blood is rh negative. Please help!!
